nate and i met with the realtor today and the loan lady. we got approval to get a rural development loan which lets us not have a down payment, so yay for that. i don’t know the exact amount we were pre-approved for, but she gave us three scenarios with the highest at about $175,000 (which is too high anyway). after signing some papers, we went to look at a house, which i might be ok with, if not for the fact that it’s on a gravel road (nate is worried about wintertime and snow).
here is a permalink to a realtor listing with more pictures.
i love the view and the yard. house needs some cleaning and cosmetic work, but that’s easy. the basement is huge and unfinished, with much potential. saturday i am meeting with the realtor and we’re looking at some more houses. woo!
